Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!!! I have always thought this tradition is one of the very finest I've heard of in any country -- to encourage an entire nation to stop and reflect and give thanks.

And isn't this Norman Rockwell painting just so evocative and nostalgic and feel good and gorgeous?? I give thanks for works of art that lift my spirits.

I'm eternally giving thanks for great books. At the moment I'm nearly at the end of Susan Wiggs's Home Before Dark . I'm slowly catching up on Susan's backlist. Love her work!

I'm also on a deadline for my last book for this year. At the moment, I'm thinking I'll be grateful for next week, when I'm finished and I can lift my head up for a moment and start thinking about Christmas. But then, when I'm not writing, I soon start to get twitchy!!

Barbara, Happy Thanksgiving to you! Obviously even though it's not a national holiday there, you are into the spirit.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love that it is still about giving thanks, and hasn't yet been commercialized beyond recognition.

I get the idea that Thanksgiving is a more important day than Christmas in some ways. People are always trying to get home for this holiday. It is a day with a great meaning and they really do seem to give thanks!!
Good luck with the deadline!!
